They say Yonohara was made by a sword. They say the Order dipped a cold blade into the ocean, and when they pulled it out two perfect drops fell back into the sea, and those drops became the islands of Yonohara. Legends and tales say Yonohara was made by a handful of brave men. Warriors, willing to give their lives for what seems to have become a forgotten word: honour.

Class 7 Mission: Umbrix Gathers Samples

A ancient and natural graveyard that stretches across the western boarder of the Murkwood Keys. Bones of every shape and size can be found here, some in entire skeletons of huge behemoths that once roamed the land, and others scattered about seemingly at random. The bones are not the most troubling ordeal, nor is the stench, but rather the Carrion Vultures and other scavengers which thrive on the decay. Inexplicably, some power has been given to these creatures through the carrion they feed upon, which has given them a hunger...a hunger that will not be denied...

Class 7 Mission: Umbrix Gathers Samples

Fri Dec 15, 2017 2:54 pm

Deep within the Boneyards of the Keizite Territory was a single small floating sphere of energy. This sphere was pale blue in colour, radiated a stream of wispy energy upwards and floating through the air with a almost silent hum. The Energy Drone would float through the area keeping itself just above the bones but not too far as to lose range of the ground below which it was scanning. After a few moments the drone would begin blasting a siren-like noise.

As the siren made its loud noises it would be met by a barrage of at least 50 needle-like bones. Each was coated in a thick venom that allowed them to home towards their target as long as the target gave off energy/magical power. After the bones had been shot, the scans the drone would pick up would tell it that whatever shot the bones resembled a Spider.

As soon as the Spider was registered the drone would send out a ping allowing the Order's mission taker to be teleported straight to the area but far enough that the spider wouldn't notice.

The teleportation was a weird feeling and Umbrix shifted uncomfortably in his black cloak. His shoulders rolled back and forth a little and he gave a small jump, rattling the bottles at his belt. Teleportation...was not something he was fond of at all. Sighing, he looked down at his equipment...everything at least was accounted for. With careful eyes, he scanned the area. It was not a place he had ever been before. With the small amount of research he did, it told him it was a rather gloomy looking area, but this was something all together; the sight of the boneyard was desolate and the air stifling, tensing and tightening the muscles in Umbrix's body. Quiet loomed in every corner and the shuffling of bones underneath his shoes gave him an uncertain feeling. Taking a deep breath, Umbrix went forward. The corks of the bottles at his belt popped open on their own, the small corks being filed into a small pouch he carried next to them. A small stream of water orbited around his being afterwards, four vials of water still sat still in their containers.

The spider stomped about searching for the little drone that had vanished. As it stomped about it's claws dug into the bones where it stepped making loud crunching noises. With each crunch venom would be released into the bones causing the bones around where it stepped to crumble and break much much easier. After a few seconds of searching, the spider would stand still and remain motionless, as if waiting for it's next target.

Umbrix went forward without knowledge of the spider being around. He was not too far from it at this point, but at the same time very much on high alert. His neck looked around and down, generally not seeing anything other than the bones, till he managed to spot the yellow shell from the spider, unmoving. Curious, but cautious, he went closer to inspect what it could be. Treasure perhaps? Preferable.

As Umbrix moved closer, he would begin stepping on crumbled bones that were covered in a sticky poisonous slime-like substance. The slime poison would get thicker and deeper the closer to the spider Umbrix got. If he moved any closer to the spider, he might notice that the poison and skulll fragments almost acted like quicksand, a double deadly quicksand. The spider like before didn't move, but it did take notice that something had stepped onto it's "web"

The moment that Umbrix stepped in the strange, sticky substance that was clinging to the crumbled bones underneath his shoes, he would stop. He lifted his foot, instinctively pulling it back to feel the tension between the ground and himself, then jumping back to the place he was before. The water that orbited him would slosh to the ground instantly, going towards the area he was before and then making some more traction around the area he was at. It picked up a good amount of the substance in a water bubble before returning to him. Quickly he pulled a glass flask from his hip, allowing his water to dump the foreign contents into the container. He shook the flask a little, peering at the substance as it wiggled in its container.

"Hm...closer it is to that "treasure", the more of the substance there is. Don't know what it is, but better be safe than sorry."

He thought to himself as his fingers opened another cork of water. It joined with the floating puddle. Umbrix unsheathed his khopesh, took a breath and then did a butterfly kick, taking the kinetic arc movement to launch a spinning water lance aimed at the "treasure", which was actually the spider. The water sharpened its point, directing the entirety of its shape into the lance. Once it hit its mark, it "melted" back into undiscernable shape.

The spider continued to remain where it was, keeping track of Umbrix as he moved near it's acidic quicksand web. When umbix fired the water lance, the spider did not see it. It's senses and ability to track were all based on the acidic substance. The lance struck with a piercing blow striking the carapace of the spiders abdomen. With the strike, the spider would turn to face the direction the impact came from. After the turn it raised it's abdomen and would fire off a bunch of bone spikes in Umbrix's general direction. The spider also made sure to keep it;s cracked carapace away from the direction Umbrix was. It could not afford another strike in the same spot.

The water that pooled around it from the water lance reemerged itself. It made formed a net around the spider, trapping it within its liquid confines. Smaller water spikes formed on the inside of the net and it compressed towards it to try to do some damage. The length of the spikes wasn't as long as the lance obviously, but it's purpose was to constrict whilst doing damage.

Meanwhile, the remaining four water in the vials shot out of its container where it made a small wall protecting Umbrix while he did a flip either left or right. The water wall was smaller since it only was made with four vials, but it protected mainly Umbrix's torso and head while he maneuvered, reflecting any bone spikes back at the spider to do any additional damage along with the water spikes. If he were to land safely, he would simultaneously pull a bolt out of his thigh holster, spin towards the hopefully constricted spider, crouching down and propping his left arm with the hand crossbow upon his knee. Loading the bolt into the crossbow and pulling back the taut wire, he fired the bolt upon the spider.

The Spider was very easily caught of guard by the net. It was expecting and HOPING it's potential prey would walk onto it's traps. But little to this spiders knowledge, was that it's potential prey was smart enough to know better. As the spider found itself inside a net, it also found itself victim to spikes and spears of water. In panic, the spider would fire spikes from it's abdomen, but these would all shoot upwards as the net was preventing it from moving and aiming. With frantic movements the spiders legs would flail about as it tried to free itself.
